monday marks are to find him in washington dc. i looked at and you are watching our key america. well let's begin this afternoon focusing on the crisis in ukraine over the weekend were a number of developments that have dramatically shifted the geo political landscape in the country. now most of the attention is centered around the southern peninsula of pride me out for the latest from that region must turn a street you aren't easy for this enough. and if you know we've been witnessing the past few days here in the crimea continue into monday as more and more are now former ukrainian troops. pledge allegiance to a little crazy in the forties and leaders in that sense the fourth of the self the open air force equipped with lots of different types of radiation including forty five mig twenty nine jet fighters and around the department of personnel told them place the allegiance to local authorities saying the wall for what people are getting

orders from the self appointed government in keeping with the baby just became in addition to the other privacy and security services including the police the military than they need more of arts and even the emergency services which are basically said the same is not even all week about togo who were stationed and students of this here before the uprising and give some of those who are appointed by the neo sorties have also now i've said or doubts that they will only take orders from local authorities including the now former commander in chief ball for ukraine's maybe plates that what we're seeing in the rest of the country is perhaps the trust or to support within the military off the new government in kiev is declining as well the star reports that several special forces units rejected the borders to march toward the right needles old kid is now trying to recruit to the reserve servicemen but now it has not been going very well since my
8:03 pm
monday morning. only around one point five percent of these was a short short of actually york. i had to walk us through some of the development that played out over the weekend. well the biggest news over the weekend was definitely it russia's upper house of parliament getting to be all green lights for the deployment of three limited amount of russian troops. here in the crimea after being asked for assistance from local authorities to work. while being worried about threats coming from the new authorities in the new right wing radicals this news. i must state here on the ground was greeted with applause by the local since basically wouldn't hear the entire week and we've been witnessing abortion rallies taking place all across the city of wuhan the capital of the crimea but of course it did spark a lot of criticism. throw me into the international community especially from the west were
8:04 pm
getting threats from the united states about economic isolation about socializing the isolation travel sanctions and so on so that is of course took quite a worrying factor. but in general. compared to the events in kyiv. last week over week ago the situation here is to be called. in fact the seats are patrolled by the so called self defense lots more still to be a military bases and artillery are now on to the complete control of local authorities and that will happen without a single shot fired so that is definitely a good side because no one wants a need of any bloodshed. last week you are being fired on in kiev wanting those very violent demonstrations kind of layout was like being in a new deal the things that are not. well i don't feel safe as a journalist right now especially compared to what we saw in kyiv since initially were just going to
8:05 pm
film protests that persona never expected that the violence would reach for that sort of that level and that still stands though i wasn't targeted personally but some of the people that we are still here with a crew members war including even the government was building its own lab report right now because of the first or just watching the events unfold on independence square in kiev that pretty much this revolution happens on the farm warheads or at least that is only was it was stated that at some point of it than just changed up the eldest ended up in the snow the whole thing and the bullets fly inside the cabin and started towards the outside and get that on video. more of a freakishly tall wall of a child so will just fly off. thankfully he was uninjured in cameraman a bullet ricocheted off
8:06 pm
towards its best. was cute but thankfully he was uninjured. so it was wet. if the situation. four compared to that. it is almost like i don't like what. it's not one of the bikini jokes here but this is really common goal the fact that the teaching that sense the bit to what we've been seeing there is another reason why the locals were so concerned they don't want a piece of what that is what the radicals just driving down the order of malta practical setting things on offense and police on five shooting eight the forty seventh and so on so right now knowing that most of. facilities the two strategic facilities and government buildings just to see steve and i being patrolled by the self defense laws who are really friendly with the locals in fact i'm sure that you've probably seen these pictures just of the locals have been taking photographs with these troops just on the streets the sheets with children smiling and it is a general in general it is a friendly atmosphere right now the big issue is now. what's going to happen next. not all meet here in the crimea and
8:07 pm
possibly not even for me in ukraine. but in the fourth region perhaps even the fourth because clearly the events and this whole situation is happening in this country right now is going to have consequences death or illness for labor but it was cold region in europe and possibly in the end of relations between russia and the us canada japan and so on this is truly a significant story and for me as a journalist of course it's interesting to be working on it and i guess that while vital for me just to see everything with my own eyes because there's so much misinformation being spread right now. fellows are due course on antiwar has enough on the ground in ukrainian you can follow mr forty nine footer had to eat for under scott at corpus cannot underscore our tea. american officials have been keeping a close eye and ukraine as tensions their reach a boiling point. secretary of state john kerry will be traveling to kiev on tuesday to discuss the situation. for more of the american response
8:08 pm
to the crisis in ukraine here's our keys on a stasi a church. we all know that the united states prides itself in being the beacon of democracy and freedom when it comes to brush away the stuff surrounding the events unraveling in ukraine accusations have been flying high from washington. but if we look in countless back past and present while the us demands that its finger pointing is taken seriously by the rest of the world. how does that mean let's listen to what others had to say on its actions. many will be so tiny and that has been there for years. he was in the meantime has more than seven hundred military bases around the world and in the notorious world leader of getting involved in wars that are opposed to not just at home but also brought the rain when panini and becomes short. you just don't invade another country on the phone the pretext of the invasion of iraq in two thousand and three had never happened under what was later proven to be such false pretenses. some would argue the world that still shocked
8:09 pm
the people of united states and our friends and allies will not leave. at the mercy of an outlaw regime that threatens the peace with weapons of mass murder. we will meet that threat now with our army air force navy coast guard and marines was born and yes that is officially the longest running war in american history. let's not forget the drone war killing civilians and whined that the west is meeting to live despite sharp criticism these tactics. most recently theory of course yet another potential military escapade that he was president and in mourning for the essentially a boy did that the last minute one three things from russia that spearheaded brokering another way towards a solution. i have decided that the united states should take military action against syrian regime targets military and thus are one example after another the strategic reasons to care about what happens in cranium next to the post undertaking military adventures whenever fancy
8:10 pm
strikes as has become so traditional in the last barely surprises anyone anymore. actual military action has not even been given a green light for by the russian presidents and russian members said it's interested in what with ukraine. regardless the world's top and dresser accuses moscow of being one point double standards on convenience. the church and our team name. the center console and now the role that the international community planes when tense situations buildup like what we are seeing played out in ukraine the special guest join me to wait and earlier i spoke with actor producer and screenwriter and martial arts expert steven seagal was recently part of an american delegation that visited russia in the aftermath of the boston marathon bombings and he has his views on the crisis in ukraine. well it's exactly the kind of thing that we meaning myself and several members of congress and millions of other people live in trying to avoid. i hear a lot of political rhetoric we hear a
8:11 pm
lot of political spinning and done i'm not in america during the sting from the russians at all. and that's not because they're not giving comments i think that they're just not being heard. for example i heard you know i'm early this morning some may say. yes somebody came onto the vessel in the black sea in. you know threatened them and said you know by five o'clock surrender were in the coming days i knew right away that had never happened and then sure enough you know. in the last artist in all the while that may not have happened in so all this kind of stuff is not constructive to wield diplomatic relations and that's who we need here we need comb. we need people who can kind of tried to look at the big picture and what's best for. ryan works best for russia. monotonous or the what's best for whirlpool
8:12 pm
europe. um that is the thing that i think we have to really keep in mind here is that. we soon the wind when the crane was sort of world overthrown. yet to keep in mind it was a democratically voted on within the resumes of government that was to put into normal diplomatic channels to through voting and so forth and so on. and then all the sudden you know it looks to me right. certain frogs with fire bombs stir fry of arming the host city and who these people are and where they came from. it is really a question of who you know subject. and then all the sudden you know this government is toppled. you know i i certainly think that in that it is. the point of why couldn't they have. you know sort of. use proper
8:13 pm
diplomatic means to change the government which is what we always go for. and. you know so. i can think is very very interesting that does all this. you know kind of funny stuff happen right before the event to know. so why the thinking he wasn't so interested in this part of the world and what doesn't stand to gain from getting involved. in my opinion you know this is a european its european union that suits the unknown pressure that certain entities are getting from the european union or stuff like that. um it's it's kind of like in springfield park and back or go do your homework you'll see that margaret thatcher was you know premature on the dole office because she refused you know the sort of put you know the you in the european euro european union and so you know i think there's a little bit of that going on
8:14 pm
here. i can find a role in ramping up tensions between countries. i do certain yes i do think unit example ages given the is this a perfect example. there is up in the end i'll get another example. i'm supposedly quoting call respectable news channels they keep saying you know just like when russia attacked georgia. really how about telling the truth giving georgia attacked russia and didn't rush to retaliate. isn't that the truth may be composed of either do their homework or stop just in austin with pickled this. the one american politician after another making the media rounds patronizing president obama and calling for an e coli his foreign policy stance week because he is not calling on the troops or anything like that. they are trying to hold his feet to the fire and to force them to
8:15 pm
act. then this is a very dangerous and to take and it's a very dangerous game to play. nobody should be criticizing obama for not taking military action are they crazy. i mean at this point you know when what we really want a cool heads and in diplomatic dialogue we should be at the height of diplomatic diplomacy right now where we are. you know talking to rush and toppling talking to crying. been trying to see if we can come up with a solution. that's good for everybody that's who we should really be trying to do. that was actor steven nissen call you as this crisis continues to unfold in ukraine rts are foreigners all over the country on the ground bringing us the latest let's turn now to care all of our lives in ukraine's capital kiev. now let's say you're just the two is in hot cars was more the oligarchs who helped to finance the two against the dna code which is

8:17 pm
seemed people that helped to finance the two told to get rewards for helping to just ask. elsewhere we have a new interior minister here in kiev a roll going to austin of god goal for now he takes over is the interior minister not worth this much is due to govern is financially only around four hundred million dollars that what is interesting about him is that in twenty twelve he appeared on the eu wanted it to paul's of most wanted list in connection with a land deal that charges were eventually dropped. however the caveat these roles to some of the richest in the country and some of ukraine's most powerful oligarchs isn't going to sit well with the people to take out onto t streets of independence square where they wanted to overthrow the government they wanted to make it that they could get reads all the use of the oligarchs and it seems that these oligarchs help
